Jason D’Aquino is a self-proclaimed “miniaturist”.

The artist from Buffalo, NY works primarily in graphite on found, small-scale antique surfaces. Usually vintage matchbooks. Sometimes an old page from an antique ledger, or any other historical ephemera. For Spoke Art‘s David Lynch homage “In Dreams”, he submitted several miniature drawings inspired by Twin Peaks, Blue Velvet and The Elephant Man. Here’s a closer look at those pieces as well as “making of” videos for every single drawing.
